Rose ParadeStanding atop a giant wedding cake float, Aubrey Loots and Danny Leclair exchanged vows New Year's Day in the first same-sex marriage during the Tournament of Roses Parade.

Throngs of spectators cheered as the men, dressed in dark suits, faced each other and held hands before the Rev. Alfreda Lanoix, who officiated the ceremony aboard the AIDS Healthcare Foundation float.

Days earlier, a San Diego woman launched a Facebook page urging people to boycott the 125th Rose Parade after learning of the couple's plans. But some like Jennifer Adair, who cheered along with her girlfriend, lined the streets just for this moment.

"We're a modern-day society, so accept it. Don't worry about what other people do," Adair told the Los Angeles Times.

The Pasadena Tournament of Roses, which puts on the parade, had said the float represents this year's parade theme, "Dreams Come True."

Kevin Ferguson, who watched the couple pass by, said he supported their move despite opposition by some.

"You can't put a timetable on another person's freedom," Ferguson told the Times.
